2B/3A String Orchestra combined rehearsal and Orchestra “Party” for Everyone

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

String Orchestra

2B and 3A String orchestras will be meeting after school on MONDAY May 7 from 2:45pm-4:00pm. This will be our first of two after school rehearsals. The second will be announced during class. This rehearsal is not optional, and you must speak with me BEFORE the rehearsal if you have a school-related conflict.

Orchestra Party

Even though I don’t like the word “party,” we’ll be having an orchestra “party” immediately following the combined string orchestra rehearsal on Monday the 7th of May. We will be meeting in the annex cafeteria from 4pm-5pm, and EVERYONE who is enrolled in an orchestra class is invited (not just string orchestra). More details will be given in class, but mark the date on your calendar!
